 China

Asia

Basically, all of China doesn't see ground swell. The coasts here rely on wind swell coming from typhoons. Typhoon season is July to Sept. Simply looking at a map, you can see Taiwan has the most surf potential. I have surfed there, and it was okay. Hainan is good because the water is warm year round and the water is actually clean! However, it's only gonna get a couple of swells a year.

Overall, China has a huge coastline so of course there's potential, but it's absolutely not worth the cost of bringing a board here with the hope of getting waves. If you're living in China near the coast like me, then all it takes is some careful timing and exploration, and you're sure to get a couple of fun swells here and there.
